The Bachelor Stars: Ranked By Relationship Length!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Take heed, Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham and all Bachelor couples of the future. Take heed. Time passes. Life happens.

Love - and fame - fades. Reality sinks in. And hits hard.

That sounds cynical, we know. But it's also factual. The Bachelor stars have not had the best track record when it comes to love lasting.

How bad is it? Simply by virtue of being together a year later, Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins ranked among the biggest success stories.

And they still broke up! That says it all right there.

Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi broke up after not even half that length of time after a relationship many felt was doomed from day one.

As for the latest case study beginning now?

Let's just say Arie and Lauren are up against major obstacles (namely his inability to know what he wants), and the odds aren't great. 

That's probably putting it generously. The odds are poor. Check out the full Bachelor relationship rankings by length and see how poor ...

1. Brad Womack

Brad Womack
Brad Womack, in the first of his two stints as The Bachelor, takes the cake by not choosing to propose to, or even continue his relationship with, either of the final two women, Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas (pictured). Wow.

2. Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Well, at least Arie Luyendyk Jr. beat Brad by choosing someone at all. He dumped Becca Kufrin in a matter of weeks, though he turned around and got engaged to someone else from the show before the After the Final Rose special ended, so we suppose we'll measure his romance with Lauren Burnham (pictured) instead. How long do you think they'll last?

3. Brad Womack (Take 2)

Brad Womack (Take 2)
In his second stint as The Bachelor, Brad Womack was briefly engaged to Emily Maynard. That ended pretty quickly, as she was single again in a couple of months.

4. Travis Stork

Travis Stork
Dr. Travis Stork and Sara Stone were broken up so fast, they got to talk about it on the After the Final Rose special.

5. Jesse Palmer

Jesse Palmer
Jesse Palmer, former NFL quarterback and current sports TV analyst, did not propose to Jessica Bowlin. They continued to date but broke up just weeks later.

6. Aaron Buerge

Aaron Buerge
Aaron Buerge and Helene Eksterowicz also lasted a matter of weeks.

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
